Our belief statement at New Generation summarizes what we believe and represents our faith declaration.
The Bible, the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God without error in the original writings, and are the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of all people, and is the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life on earth.
There is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three manifestations: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God the Father, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He was crucified, died on the cross, the final and complete sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. And he was buried, and arose bodily from the dead on the third day. Furthermore, he ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our Intercessor, Advocate and High Priest.
The Holy Spirit, who glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ, convicts people of sin, and regenerate the believing sinner. And He indwells, empowers, instructs, guides, comforts and teaches the believer for godly living and service.
Human beings were created in the image and likeness of God but fell into sin and are therefore lost. And only through regenerative work by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained after repentance and baptism in water and of the Holy Spirit.
That faith in the blood of Jesus and in His resurrection is the only ground for salvation and justification of the believer, and the receivers of Jesus Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit and are therefore children of God. The imminent, premillennial and personal return of our Lord Jesus Christ is our hope and thus bears down on the personal life and service of the believer.
Baptisms and Communion
Water baptism by immersion soon after repentance and accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and personal Savior, is a testimony of death to sin and resurrection to a new life. Baptism in the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of speaking in other tongue as the Spirit gives utterance according to the Scriptures. The holy communion or Lord’s Supper is a memorial service representing in a symbolic and sacred manner the death of the Lord Jesus Christ; all true believers should share in it.
Time to Come
In the bodily resurrection of all the dead; of the believers to everlasting life, joy and blessedness with Jesus Christ, and of unbelievers to judgement, punishment and eternal damnation.
Christ is the head of the Church which is composed of all such persons, who through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ.
